Rupert Murdoch remains the grand experimenter, announcing in an interview in The Australian Financial Review last week (not available online) that he will launch a newspaper designed exclusively for tablet devices, including the i-Pad. It will be called The Daily.

According to what Rupert told the Fin, it will be launched in six weeks and sell for a dollar day. His comments suggested it would be aimed at the US market, and he said he needed 800,000 readers to make it viable. So far as I am aware, it will be the world’s first tablet-only newspaper, but probably not the last.
